April 1979 - Soviet Cosmonaut - Close-Up UFO Encounter In Space

 

"It followed us during half of our orbit. We observed it on the light side, and when we entered the shadow side, it disappeared completely. It was an engineered structure, made from some type of metal, approximately 40 meters long with inner hulls. The object was narrow here and wider here, and inside there were openings. Some places had projections like small wings. The object stayed very close to us. We photographed it, and our photos showed it to be 25 to 29 meters away." - Cosmonaut Victor Afanasyev commenting on a UFO sighting that occurred while en route to the Solyut 6 space station in April of 1979.

 

Victor states, "I think we are not alone, something of extraterrestrial origin has visited Earth." The alien craft turned toward ours, followed us and flew formation 25 to 29 meters away. We photographed the metallic engineering structure that was around 40 meters long. The film was later confiscated

Rancher C. E. Potts found one of his prize bulls alongside of the road one summer afternoon in late July. "We were passing down this road, and there was a thunderstorm a coming up behind us. We smelled this animal as we come by. We came back to check on it, and found it was mutilated. We examined it and its sexual organs was taken out. Its eyes were taken out, and its eyelashes were taken out. Well, there wasn't no predators. Not a predator bothered it since it was dead even. Couldn't have been killed by a predator cause all the surgical work was done by an expert. I really didn't think anything of it till it come home to me. Now I know it was bound to have been mutilated cause anyone who could see good could tell it was," Mr. Potts remembered.

September

 

1979-09-22; Southern Indian Ocean

 

Type: Explosion

 

This controversial and assumed explosion over the Indian Ocean was named the Vela Incident, having been detected by an American Vela Hotel satellite (6911). That high-altitude sentry satellite carried several physics instruments designed specifically to detect nuclear explosions.

 

Three possible causes emerged over the several years following the event: 1) a secret nuclear test, likely by South Africa and/or Israel; 2) an asteroid or meteorite impact; or 3) spurious instrumentation noise on board the satellite.

 

Despite numerous sweeps by special US Air Force radiation detection aircraft, no airborne nuclear contaminants were detected.
